Having many errors like this is often related to the Target Platform. In Window -> Preferences -> Plug-in Development -> Target Platform, make sure the "cdt" target definition is selected. "Reload" sometimes helps. Clicking "Edit" and then "Finish" in the resulting dialog without making any changes also sometimes helps. After doing one of these, restart Eclipse, wait for pending jobs (things like "Load Target Platform" and "Building workspace") to finish, and see if the errors have gone away.

Note that, even with a correct target platform, I typically see 100-200 errors (but not 13000 like in your screenshot). I think that's normal, and it doesn't prevent you from doing development.

Finally, note that the best place to ask questions like this, about doing development work on CDT, is the CDT Developers mailing list (
